Over the past 50 years, shuttered factories and lost jobs have become familiar stories in the Rust Belt communities of the Mahoning Valley. With politicians, Governor Mike DeWine and organizations like America Makes, The Regional Chamber, and the Tech Belt Energy Innovation Center (TBIEC) pushing to show that the Mahoning Valley is willing and ready to be a part of the next generation of technology that's the future of every auto manufacturer in the world.
Electric vehicles are one of the fastest growing modes of transport which have adopted smart technologies. According to Market Watch, declining battery costs, rising commitment from major automakers, strong policy support from state and local governments, and low operational costs (including discounted charging tariffs from utilities) have put electric vehicles on track to pass gasoline-powered vehicles. The global electric vehicles market is anticipated to reach $912B by 2026.
Join us for a conversation with national leaders in energy efficient vehicles and learn why companies are looking to build and sell electric vehicles in the Valley.
